The Kansas Bureau of Investigation says an 86-year-old woman who went missing Monday from a casino near Wichita was found dead.
The agency on Tuesday issued a Silver Alert for Dixie Adair, of Rose Hill, Kansas. She was last seen around 10:30 a.m. Monday at the Kansas Star Casino in Mulvane. She reportedly left the casino and was headed west toward Highway 81. She had been staying at the casino over the weekend.
Casino officials report that she seemed to be disorientated when she left the property and left her luggage at the front desk area. Adair had a heart condition that required medication.
KWCH -TV reports that Sumner County Sheriff’s Capt. Mike Westmoreland says Dixie Adair may have left her car after it became stuck in mud on a rural dirt road. Her body was discovered Thursday about 200 feet from her car in the southern part of the county.
Her car was spotted by an aircraft about 40 miles south of the casino.
Authorities believe she became lost after leaving the casino.
